    Had the unfortunate experience of a Sunday late afternoon, early evening reservation. Yes the place was busy, but my party of 6 sat for 40 minutes before water and drinks arrived, then had to rush the dinner delivery and most all the food came out slightly burned. Disappointing as it's a nice location.

    Because we are health conscious it is hard to dine out and find quality and tasteful meals. But Seasons 52 has a great menu with so many options, all under 475 calories. The food was plated nicely and tasted wonderful. We even had one of the famous dessert cups because when your meal is a healthy option, you might as well have a reasonable portion of dessert!

    Chose this restaurant for my birthday dinner during restaurant week. They accommodated 8 people and our waitress was very nice and treated us really well. Very helpful and friendly. The filet mignon and the scallops were very good. The filet melted in your mouth! Would recommend!

    First time here & it was a Tuesday night on restaurant week although we didn't go there for that reason but we had friends staying across the street at a hotel. There were six of us dining, five of us had the restaurant week special of filet mignon that was delicious & one had the scallops which he said was very good. Service was great being that it was extremely busy. It was a bit noisy maybe due to the amount of people in the restaurant but it was hard to carry on a conversation at our table but I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    I absolutely love food, but I'm also extremely health conscious. Was so grateful to find a restaurant that is almost as health-conscious as I am. The seasonal vegetables for the menu were mushrooms and broccoli, and everything was delicious. We had the chicken skewer appetizer which had an awesome fuji slaw, and for dinner I had the steak salad which was a perfect portion. To top off the experience, we had an awesome server who was very polite and prompt! Can't wait to go back!

    We've always driven by "The Headquarters," but were prompted to check the place out given its inclusion in San Diego Restaurant Week. We liked most everything about Seasons 52. The patio outside was great for us, especially on a nice night. The food was really good, especially the flat bread which, well, knocked us on our butts. The wine selection was fine...we were each happy with what we ordered. The service was quite good, our server responsive and knowledgeable, but not overwhelming, bugging us every 5 minutes. The ambiance was excellent, at least the night that we went. We were going to be seated inside, but we requested to be outside given that, uh, it's San Diego, right. We were pleased to get our patio table and would recommend it.

    The salmon was really good. The vegetables that canes with it had no flavoring. But I did ask for no garlic, so I'm not sure if that made a difference. Everything in the menu is under 540 calories.

    Food need not be buried in rich sauces to be delicious. There is an extensive menu, with plenty of vegetarian options. The waitress brought tastes of several wines to help us choose. Best of all, the desserts were free, since it was my husband's birthday. You can get small servings of desserts-- another nice touch.

    I love this restaurant! The food is delicious AND really healthy, too. I count all my calories and nutrients, and I can even have dessert there! One caution is that the dining room is VERY noisy, so if you like quiet, go at the less popular hours, or eat outside in the patio, where it is lovely and quiet! Also, if you have mobility issues, as I do, there is valet parking and easy egress.

    We frequent the restaurant, really liking the healthy alternatives... We live in the neighborhood as well. We brought our of town family on Sunday. The food was a hit as always, but the service really was not up to par... Not sure why, as the dining room was not super busy. A bit disappointed but look forward to better service next time.

    Ambiance was great, food and service were just "Ok." Server seemed to be at the end of his shift and would have rather been somewhere else. Food was under-seasoned; lamb chops tasted mostly of char. Had a great experience on previous visit so willing to give it one more shot.

    Short version: Service top rate, food excellent. Longer version: We travel extensively, and have been to several Seasons 52 throughout the country and wanted to try the San Diego location for a bite. We were expecting 4 stars, but the service and food put it to a higher level - better than expected. Kelly - our server - we would give 6 stars. Attitude, recommendations, and service was top rate from her. I had the sea bass special, my wife the halibut. Both were very well prepared - nothing left on the plate - and we are not big people. We came in on happy hour and to have flatbread, plus a tasting of three 90+ rated wines for $20 is a steal. Yes we would go back - an excellent experience this time.

    We live across the street....how cool is that?! Always love the atmosphere and the service...warm and welcoming. Great Wine Flight Happy Hour as well as a wonderful special occasion spot! The reason I gave it a minus one star rating was due to the caprese salad not having any flavor in the burrata and we requested bread sticks but were told that they burned in the oven. (Kenneth removed the cost of the Caprese as well as waved the corkage fee, so it's hard to be too disapproving....in fact that's one of the things I love about OUR Seasons....everyone will do whatever it takes to make you happy!)

    We made a reservation for six at 5:00 p.m. because we were on our way to a concert. The hostess seated us at a lovely round table, next to a window and protected by a screen, so we felt very private. The menu has a good variety. My husband shared an order of three-mushroom flatbread and a rack of lamb. There was no hassle about splitting, and the kitchen did it at no charge. The bar serves a good strong drink, and the wine pours for a glass are generous. Everyone was happy with their choices, from fancy salads and assorted flatbreads to Trout Almondine. This Seasons 52 is walking distance from the San Diego Convention Center. It was very convenient for conference attendees.

    First time at Seasons 52. Made reservation for 10 and noted the occasion was a birthday celebration. All the staff knew of the special occasion. Drink orders quickly taken and delivered. Appetizers ordered and were very good, especially the fig flatbread. Lots of interesting menu selections. Entrées arrived without undue wait. One guest's filet came well done, ordered medium. Waitress immediately apologized, and returned with an entirely new plate, properly prepared. Manager comp'd that entrée and apologized. Swordfish entrée excellent. Five usually hard to please teenagers in the group must have had a good time, they didn't play with their cell phones much. Overall, very good food, outstanding service in a very nice atmosphere.

    My hat goes off to Kenneth Daniels, service manager at Seasons 52. Me. Daniels went completely out of his way to accommodate my date and I. I have never had this 5 star service and attention from any manager at any restaurant at any of the countries I have ever visited. I am truly pleasantly surprised that my best dining experience happened here in my native San Diego. I won't get into much details but will say this, Mr. Daniels gets it. Mr. Daniels knows how to make his customers feel desired, important and welcomed. On another note, the food was excellent and the price not bad at all. The place is clean and the ambiance is awesome all around. I am coming back as soon as my work schedule allows.

    Nice evening with friends at Seasons 52 near Headquarters. We were not rushed from our table and able to sit there and enjoy a long coffee after dinner. Atmosphere was warm and welcoming, with low lights, low noise level and excellent service. Fish was a little dry, but salads and vegetables were crisp and fresh. It's a good place to go with friends and be able to talk. Outdoor area superb on a warm night.

    I had eaten here once before, and remembered all the wines by the glass, which is nice to pair with each course. I forgot that they specialize in lower calorie, fresh & seasonal food. My wife had the baked olives starter, which included whole garlic cloves and chiles. I ordered the seasonal lobster flatbread, and it was great with the addition of some garlic and chiles from her dish. That was a lot for us, so we ordered an entrée salad, which was OK, and a side of sea scallops, which is a great $10 add-on. Then we finished with a few of the $2.95 desserts in a large shot glass (can't get into too much trouble that way...). Our server was pleasant, and the atmosphere is pretty quiet & calm, even though we were near the exposed kitchen.

    We have walked over to Seasons 52 twice this summer for dinner prior to attending Padres baseball games. Yummo! Way better than ballpark food with the added bonus of a walk back to the park (about a 20 minute stroll). We especially enjoy the homemade sodas and fresh salads. We plan on returning often, whenever we are in the downtown area.

The food presentation was appealing and the flavors were suburb. Everyone in our group loved their experience at Seasons 52. I enjoyed dinner so much, I returned for a lunch meeting a few days later.

    I've heard many rave reviews about Season's 52 and this visit was my first while spending a month in San Diego. The restaurant did not disappoint me, which is an easy thing to do when all one has heard is raves. The services was exceptionally courteous, attentive and professional and the food was delicious, unique, and beautifully presented. I hope that Season's 52 will open a restaurant in Palm Springs where my primary residence is located. I'll definitely be back to one of their restaurants!
